Looking forward to seeing pictures and hearing about the exhibit. The opening of the exhibit in Denver was mentioned in a news segment on travel for holiday weekend.
So glad for you! Enjoy :)
Congratulations! I am so happy to read this :-) Have fun!!!!!
So exciting! Look forward to hearing how it went.
A little late... But this was a very good instruction. Thank You!!
Glad you found it! So, where's it from?
Well, I found it! and am slowly slogging through figuring out how to NOT have to cut and tie myself to death. So far I have reworked it about 3 times and still finding things I have to invent.
That is beautiful!
It's a permanent exhibit that was intended for local artists, but they saw my work in the IOLI Bulletin and decided they would really like a piece or 2. So we are going back and forth. They seem to like the spirals the best, so I have been trying things out. I think the exhibit is about all the sources of artistic inspiration and experiment. I hope I can make it to Denver to see it! (The last time I went to Denver, I got altitude sickness. I could barely drag myself from one place to another. It happened in Albuquerque, too!)
WOW! Awesome! What kind of exhibition is it?
WOW patty, this is so very exciting, congratulations!
Lol, I know. I just randomly happened to read the blogs today.
As for the cutting and tying. I use the Magic thread method and an invisible join I've learned here, and I might have a lot of little 1-2" ends to cut away, the joins are mostly invisible, unless you're not paying attention and you pull your ball thread (white) through your shuttle thread knots (black) and then you just have to "cut your losses" as it were or else live with it and consider it a feature of handmade items.
I am a big supporter of big projects. Take your question over to the pattern detective thread, and someone might hit on it.
Ah, yes, I was commenting about you, but only in an encouraging way, Wodentoad -- as I've said, you are inspiring!
Patty D, any luck finding the conversation you were looking for?
I'm getting ready to start a doily, but one that's only 7inches across.
Happy Tatting, good people!
My ears are burning!
Mine is the Tea Cloth from the Sanders book, though I admit I need to get my hands on a few more tatting books.
I'm not sure this is the discussion you are thinking about -- but what came to mind was Wodentoad's Lost in Translation thread in the Tatting Talk forum???
I am so looking forward to seeing picture of your latest. Those pieces amaze me, I check them out again ever so often just cause.
Really...? Congratulations to you
I can't wait to see what you make...
Well I just got some hand dyed thread that will be perfect. Hyperbolic tatting looks best with the emphasis of variegated color and I have some new ideas, too!
How exciting. I'm delighted for you! Being exhibited in a museum, now that's something...
